Согласно современным представлениям и тенденциям в мировой практике обучения иностранным языкам, основной целью обучения является формирование коммуникативных умений. В практике преподавания иностранного языка в медицинском техникуме это положение приобретает особую значимость.

Современная медицинская сестра более не является бессловесным манипулятором. Роль медицинской сестры заключается в обеспечении физической и психологической поддержки здоровых и больных людей, оценке состояния здоровья отдельных лиц, в укреплении здоровья, предупреждении заболеваний, в обеспечении и поддержании здоровой обстановки, в участии в санитарном просвещении, осуществлении совместно с врачом медицинского обслуживания, предоставлении рекомендаций, проведении реабилитационных мероприятий.

От медицинской сестры ожидается оказание широкого спектра вневрачебных услуг, в том числе консультирования в отношении здорового образа жизни, организации патронажа и помощи на дому, деятельного участия в реабилитации.

Кроме того, как показывает статистика, более 60% медицинской информации публикуется на английском языке, поэтому наши выпускники должны уметь понимать профессионально-ориентированные тексты.


Главная структурная особенность содержания обучения заключается в его делении на два модуля: основной, который осваивается всеми обучающимися независимо от профиля профессионального образования, и профессионально направленный (вариативный).

Изучение содержания основного модуля направлено на коррекцию и совершенствование навыков и умений, сформированных в основной школе. В ходе освоения профессионально направленного модуля проводится изучение языка с учетом профиля профессионального образования, конкретной специальности СПО.


Разрабатывая данное занятие, я учитывала профессиональный профиль образовательного учреждения. Знание фитотерапии очень важно для будущих медицинских работников.

На занятиях я сочетаю, как традиционные методы обучения, так и новые информационные технологии. Презентации для занятий готовлю сама и подключаю к этому творческому процессу обучающихся. Предварительно знакомлю ребят с тематикой, объявляю основные критерии, по которым будет оцениваться их работа, знакомлю с методикой работы над презентацией и устанавливаю сроки сдачи работ. В период изготовления творческих работ предлагаю консультации. Защита презентации осуществляется в устной форме на английском или русском языках, учитывая уровень знаний и способностей студентов.

The scientific name "Matcaria" derives from the latin word "mater" (mother) and suggests the many uses in mothers' diseases and generally in that of women. Because it is a common plant, it can be found anywhere, in uncultivated areas, on fields, on road edges and so on. The plant loves heat, light (which influences the essential oil contained), and moist soils.

In ancient times, chamomile was used to control neuralgia and rheumatism (especially the articular one) and the ancient Egyptians used it to decrease fever. It is also mentioned in old books about medicinal plants that chamomile's oil drives away fatigue from the limbs.



Properties of Chamomile plant

Chamomile flowers contain: essential oils (etheric oil: 0.38 - 0.81%), vitamins B1 and C, mineral substances (phosphorus, potassium, silicon, iron, manganese, calcium, copper, lead, zinc, zirconium), glucides, lipids (in small quantities) and acids. The plant has calming, analgesic, disinfecting and antiseptic, antispasmotic and tonic actions.

No matter if we're talking about gingivitis, dental abscess (and dental pains generally), tonsillectomy, stomatitis, hyperacid gastritis, ulcer, enterocolitis, diarrhea, hemorrhoids, flues, colds, sinusitis, bronchic asthma, rheumatism or insomnia, chamomile is a true adjuvant. Being a good sedative, it can be used against stress and anxiety. Chamomile also helps to drive away menstrual problems (as amenorrhea) and other pelvic diseases.

Used externally, the infusion can be added to the bath water (four handfuls of flowers to a bathtub) or in the head washing water (one handful). The hair - especially the blond one - becomes silky and shiny. The complexion is also refreshed if it is cleaned with chamomile infusion. Also, conjunctivitis and eye inflammations heal faster with the help of this mixture. It can also be used for gargle (in cases of toothaches), cutaneous eruptions, or cleaning wounds.
